Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man. - Rabindranath Tagore
Imagine a KinderCare without children, a school without children, a park without children or just think about your life without them. As once said, “be the change you want to see in the world”, children are the changes that come into this planet as a blessing in disguise. As parents, educators and children lovers the onus is on us to make their childhood the smartest, happening but nothing more than the happiest, it’s what that moulds them in the future.A happy childhood leads to a smart and happy future.
As children’s day is approaching educators plan on making the event big in their schools. While activities like dance, music, skits along with candies and other eateries. A cherry on the cake would be fine gifting solutions for children in the schools. We all know students then come in their own colored attire, for high school children a live photo booth could be set up and customized school frames could be used to frame the photograph with the class name and a tag line that describes them the most. Badges to differentiate the batches (Class 10D – 2016).
Decorate the kindergarten with toys, soft toys and activities that could go on for a couple of hours with their favorite cartoons such as Mickey, Minnie, Hello Kitty and more. Children in primary departments could have fun activities throughout the day. One of them could be a memory quiz. Gingercrush.com has a special game for children called Chimp Challenge.
